A note from the Editor:

The American movement is so heavily identified with wood: shingled bungalows, Mission oak, wainscots and beams. And as for the revival, interpretation of the woodwork of Greene and Greene is a movement all its own. Historians like to say that Arts and Crafts died during the Colonial Revival Twenties and was buried by the Depression, to be resurrected only with the renewed interest of collectors during the 1970s. I say that the movement didn’t die entirely during those years; it was kept alive by such fine-woodworkers as Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Tage Frid, James Krenov, and Sam Maloof, each exploring Nature + art + craft. Wood was the bridge. Click to continue reading the Editor’s Note ->

Ojai Time

Long-time collectors of vintage American pottery and Navajo art found the right house for their collections. It was built as a winter haven for industrialist Edward Drummon Libbey (as in Libbey Owens-Corning). Bill and Kathy Couturie restored it in the 1990s.

I enjoy your magazine and subscribed in late summer. To date, I have received just one magazine yet I just received a letter saying that I must renew my subscription as my next issue is my last. While I enjoy your magazine, 2 issues for the price of 4, does not seem like a bargain.

I am researching the interior of a log house design (flooring, furniture, window shades, fireplace, etc.) can you help me with some pictures and articles in this direction?
